Richmond Holidays: The home of quality Christian holidays

Quality Christian holidays in beautiful and exciting locations around the world. Relax and enjoy from the moment you arrive.

Sun, Sail, Worship, Rest.

Fun, relaxing and Christ-centred Christian summer holidays! Come by yourself, with friends or as a family knowing that you have been prayed for before you arrive.

Sun, Ski, Worship, Rest.

Richmond has been providing quality Christian ski holidays since 2007 – let us give you a holiday to remember!

When God speaks to Moses in Exodus 33:14, He reminds us, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest”. What a joy it is that our Heavenly Father loves to be with us in relationship and in rest!

This message is at the heart of each Richmond holiday; we offer you space to relax, explore your faith and invest in friendships. In these incredible locations and at our UK office, our Christian staff teams always start the day with prayer and Bible study, putting God first and seeking His wisdom and blessing for the adventures that lie ahead.

If you’re ready for adventure or seeking rest, we hope to see you in one of our resorts soon!

The Richmond staff were lovely and the location was superb. I met wonderful fellow holiday makers. We formed strong bonds and supported each other. It was lovely to know that you could go for a meal, sit on the beach, go on an outing or whatever and have someone to do things with.

Janet, September 19, Samos

I loved being on the waterfront and having Christian fellowship. Such a different atmosphere to staying in ordinary hotels

Carol, October 19, Samos

It was a very pleasant atmosphere in the chalet especially when we were all together at meal times. The facilities and position on the slopes were fantastic and the snow and weather were the icing on the cake.

Gary, April 18, Chalet Des Neiges

To be honest this was our best skiing holiday ever. I couldn’t find fault with anything!

Gary, April 18, Chalet Des Neiges

Fantastic holiday. Great fellowship, friendship, ministry, skiing, food and hospitality. A real credit to the team at Richmond

Tony, April 18, Chalet Des Neiges

The ministry sessions in the evening were excellent - my teenage daughters were keen to attend and found them very accessible and helpful. I loved the week and discovered I loved skiing. I can't wait to come back!

Fiona, April 18, Chalet Des Neiges

I love coming on holiday with Richmond. Nothing is too much trouble and the staff are always so friendly and on hand to help with any issues.

Naomi, April 18, Chalet Des Neiges

Proximity to the slopes and skiing was amazing. Good food and great to have tea and coffee available all day. Very good childcare - the kids felt very at home and relaxed in the wonderful atmosphere.

Cordelia, April 18, Chalet Des Neiges

The holiday was enjoyable in every way. I've come home feeling more refreshed than I have in a long time! The commitment, availability and friendliness of the Richmond team was outstanding.

Jill, July 18, Samos

The scenery was stunning, Fellowship was wonderful and the chalet felt very homely. Food was great and plentiful. We had a wonderful time helped by a very dedicated and delightful Richmond team.

Robert, August 18, French Alps

This is the most amazing holiday we have had. We can’t thank you enough. The team were fantastic and bent over backwards to make us feel welcome. The Christian atmosphere and teaching was fantastic. We will definitely be booking with Richmond again!

Philip, January 19, Chalet Elise

The staff at Chalet Elise were a real team - they were efficient, united, friendly, supportive of each other as well as the guests, and genuinely caring, with a big dose of fun and joie de vivre. Our feeling was that this was a "golden" team, and a beautiful demonstration of what a little piece of the kingdom could be like.

Susannah, December 18, Chalet Elise

The whole team were brilliant and they were very competently led by Lydia. They all had great characters, and I think I have to say they were one of the best teams I have experienced. There was just something special about them as a team that I can't quantify in words.

Frances, December 18, Chalet Elise
